Perianesthesia Nurses Celebrated with Week of Events

Coworkers at the Infirmary and North celebrated Perianesthesia Nurse Awareness Week Feb. 5-11.

Perianesthesia nurses celebrated with activities throughout the week, including a CNE offering, a Warm-Hearted Wednesday Appreciation Day, a luncheon and a staff potluck. Life Saver Awards were given to coworkers who displayed exceptional teamwork.

There are more than 60,000 perianesthesia registered nurses in the United States, including those working in pre-anesthesia care, post-anesthesia care and pre-admission testing.

The American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses works to advance nursing practice through education, research and development of professional practice standards.
